Fabric and Paper Layered Into Spectacular 3D Sculptures


Artist Andrea Myers explores two- and three-dimensional space through painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Working mainly with fabric and paper, Myers says, "I feel my work is dependent upon various processes, such as cutting as drawing, the relationship between deconstruction and construction, and the inherent malleability and vulnerability of my chosen materials."
The Chicago-based artist originally focused her attention on flat paintings and printmaking, but, finding more interest in the process rather than the final prints, she gradually turned her skills towards experimentation with the physical materials. Layer upon layer, three-dimensional sculptures emerge from her sketches and ideas, which are mainly centered around juxtapositions between abstract nature and manufactured objects.
The artist says, "I find beauty in the cyclical behavior of nature, in the growth and in the decay and in all of the moments in between." She depicts that behavior through soft shapes and smooth lines, as well as with titles such as RipplePlateau, andMelting. However, viewers' expectations are immediately disrupted by the use of synthetic materials filled with bold, saturated colors that conflict with the muted tones of an organic world.

    issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
